Go it alone, or join RI Families in Nature on Saturday, July 20, as we explore this area together.
This 100 acre park offers trails, picnic tables, a comfort station, and a beach at Peck Pond, which make it the perfect place for a summer hike.
Pick up the trail right from the beach (follow the white triangles with blue dots) and hike the 1.3 mile loop trail through shaded woodlands. Along the trail, be sure to look for downed trees or stumps with the characteristic chew marks of the beavers that make their home in the pond.
When you return to the beach, enjoy a yummy picnic, change into your suits, and cool off in the pond. There’s even a lifeguard on duty!
And for you cross-country skiers, be sure to return in the winter to take advantage of the 10 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails that lead into the adjacent George Washington Management Area.
